Xiidra (Lifitegrast Ophthalmic Solution)

Xiidra (lifitegrast ophthalmic solution) is a prescription eye drop specially formulated to treat the signs and symptoms of dry eye disease. Dry eye disease can cause discomfort, irritation, and even damage to the surface of the eye if left untreated. Xiidra works by targeting a specific protein involved in the inflammatory process, providing rapid relief and long-lasting comfort for those suffering from this common condition.

Why Choose Xiidra?

Xiidra (lifitegrast) is a lymphocyte function-associated antigen-1 (LFA-1) antagonist, which means it works by blocking the interaction between LFA-1 and its ligand intercellular adhesion molecule-1 (ICAM-1). This interaction is a key factor in the inflammatory process that contributes to dry eye disease. By targeting this specific interaction, Xiidra effectively reduces inflammation and helps relieve the signs and symptoms of dry eye disease.

How to use Xiidra?

Xiidra is administered as one drop in each eye, twice a day, approximately 12 hours apart. It is essential to follow your healthcare provider’s instructions and to use Xiidra as prescribed for optimal results. Do not touch the tip of the dropper to any surface or your eye to prevent contamination.

Important Safety Information about Xiidra

Before using Xiidra, inform your healthcare provider about any allergies, medical conditions, or other medications you are taking to avoid potential interactions. If you are pregnant, planning to become pregnant, or breastfeeding, discuss the potential risks and benefits with your healthcare provider.
